    Could someone please tell me what breeds my ladies are. They are only young and this is the clearest picture I could get. Any other time they are running about but once my phone comes out they sit down. The one at the back is a dark brown version of the lighter brown one on the right. I'm in the UK if this narrows it down any. [​IMG]Hope someone can help me. Sat with bated breath awaiting for responses. TIA [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Could you get some more photos? Of each bird individually, standing up and from the side?

    Based on what I can see I'd guess mixed breeds, but it's really hard to be sure without seeing the entire birds.

    These are the ones I've got on my phone at present as it's 12.30am and I'm at work. I will try and get more tomorrow when I get home if these are no good xx

    Is that an agility tunnel in the photo?

    It's a cat tunnel. They love it. They balance on the top and roll it backwards and forwards. It's a competition who can get on it first [​IMG][​IMG]. They also snuggle in it too xx

    Hi Dirtybird

    I'm thinking the white one may be a light sussex or a cross of a light sussex and also possibly a cockerel judging by that pink comb.

    The other two are not looking overly familiar breed wise... maybe welsummer crosses and the one in the last photo also looks to have a suspiciously large pink comb for a pullet.

    Did you buy them as chicks or incubate them yourself? Where did you get them from? Are they supposed to be pure breeds?

    Regards

    Barbara
